Move of LVM drive fails

i recently became issues with my primary drive so i decided to buy a new one and migrate everything.
So i added the drive to the PV added to the VG and successfully moved /swap and /root but i fail with /data.

I created a new LV "data_new" and i added it to storage.cfg, but when i try to move the disks in the WI i get:

create full clone of drive scsi0 (local-lvm:vm-104-disk-1)
Using default stripesize 64.00 KiB.
Logical volume "vm-104-disk-0" created.
transferred: 0 bytes remaining: 10737418240 bytes total: 10737418240 bytes progression: 0.00 %
qemu-img: Could not open '/dev/pve/vm-104-disk-1': Could not open '/dev/pve/vm-104-disk-1': No such file or directory
Logical volume "vm-104-disk-0" successfully removed
TASK ERROR: storage migration failed: copy failed: command '/usr/bin/qemu-img convert -p -n -f raw -O raw /dev/pve/vm-104-disk-1 zeroinit:/dev/pve/vm-104-disk-0' failed: exit code 1
And actually i see only "root" and "swap" in /dev/pve

here is a lvs output:

Gladly everything still works but i want to get rid of this situation. Any suggestions what to do?
